I recalled having smoked this cigar about 3 years ago but didn’t really remember much about it. I had the chance to got back and revisit this unique smoke so I had to do it!

Appearance & Smell
This cigar smells like creamy dirt with a dash of oak. The box press looks really good. It’s a nice medium brown, a little on the lighter end of the spectrum.
I used my Xikar Xi1 to put a clean flat cut on the cap. Then I used a Xikar Enigma double torch to get a good even light.
Burn & Draw
This cigar took no time at all to light. It was an easy light and the draw was perfect. The box press was great and did not make the draw too tight.
Strength & Body
This cigar was a solid medium with no doubts about it. It stayed consistent in strength throughout. Body had enough complexity to keep me intrigued through the whole cigar. There was this earthy cocoa that lingered from beginning to end.
I would definitely purchase this cigar again. The earthy cocoa with a little bit of oak made it a delight to smoke. I don’t usually go for cigars this long but the box press made it easy. I liked the box press with the 50 gauge. For any of you smokers that tend to clench your cigars while you work on other things, this cigar really makes that easy to do.
